{Happy Martin Luther King Day!}

Monday, January 15, 2018

For the past 9 years we've celebrated Martin Luther King day by cooking his favorite meal.
Unfortunately I caught Brave's flu Thursday night so I delegated the cooking of our
fried chicken and pecan pie to Joella's & Kroger. 
Mama always said anything picked up within 5 miles from home is considered homemade right?
We tried new recipes this year for the Sweet Potato Casserole, Macaroni & Cheese, & Green Beans.
They were less time consuming to make but tasted just as great as years past!
It was such a gift to have my Papa and Twinner in town to celebrate this meal together.
In addition to cooking MLK's favorite meal we try and watch a
documentary or movie about racial reconciliation.
Today I listened Dr. King's I Have A Dream speech posted above.
What a magnificent, humble, and well-educated man.
I pray we never take our family and freedom for granted!

PS - If you haven't seen The Butler, 12 Years As A Slave, or Selma we highly recommend them!
